I'm not a country music fan or into the New Adult genre, but I've been impressed with Michelle Argyle's writing in the past, so I decided to read Out of Tune. This is quite a bit different from Argyle's other stories, but I think being able to write well in different genres is one of her talents. While there's not really any action in Out of Tune, I did find the story to be interesting. I didn't really relate to the main character, but I liked her persistence in achieving her goal. I was also impressed with how the hearing issues were addressed in the story. It seemed well researched, and I felt like I learned while being entertained. This is an adult book with some language and sex-not graphic, but mentioned on several occasions.
OUT OF TUNE has become my favorite YA/New Adult title this fall! The book is about a twenty-something girl named Maggie who wants nothing more than to step out of the shadow of her country music superstar parents shadow, and sing. Turns out, it's not that easy. I absolutely loved the fact that OUT OF TUNE was a love story, without all of the explicit sex. The author really gave the reader credit, in allowing us to use our imagination. I really empathized with Maggie and the tough decisions she had to make. I repeatedly found myself pausing in order to put myself in the same situation. Would I take on all the responsibility that would come with being with Cole? Or would I choose the comfortable life with Nathan? I just loved how deep the whole situation was. OUT OF TUNE was definitely a page turner. Country music and out of the norm situations with the characters was a refreshing change of pace in a genre that seems to be stale. I will definitely be recommending this novel to friends and family, as well as checking out more of Michelle D. Argyles titles!
22 year old Maggie wants to be a country singer just like her parents but there is one little problem, she can't sing or can she? Maggie is a sweet girl who just wants to sing, Unfortunately she is tone deaf and she has no confidence. After finding out that her parents are divorcing, she decides to move out on her own. At first, she moves in with her best friend/ex boyfriend Cole but after a bad performance decides to stay with her new voice teacher Nathan who she has a major crush on. Nathan helps unlocks Maggie's amazing voice but now Maggie is stuck between her feeling for both Cole and Nathan. I really enjoyed this book. The story drew me in and I fell in love with both Cole and Nathan. The only issue I had was that it ended kind of abruptly. Yes, you got your Happily Ever After but I felt that it really needed another chapter or at least an Epilogue. It did not feel finished. But I was happy with the outcome of the story, I just wish there was more of it! "I received a free copy of this book via Netgalley for an honest review*
